John McCormac has been collecting and processing statistics on domain registrations and hosting for as long as I can remember. He is probably best known for Hackwatch and WhoisIreland, which produces monthly reports for the Irish hosting and domain industry.
John’s latest project has been in development for several months and offers an alternative to some of the existing domain statistics sites already on the market.
What makes it different is that HosterStats cares about ccTLD data.
Sites like WebHosting.info and DomainTools all but ignore ccTLD data and give a rather skewed perspective of non-US based providers.
With Hosterstats you can easily check the DNS history on any .com/.net/org/info/mobi/eu/asia/co.uk or .ie domain name.
While the site isn’t the prettiest at present it is incredibly functional and nice and fast to load, so you get the information that you want quickly and easily.
It will be interesting to see what John plans on adding in terms of features in the coming weeks and months.
